Scolded for Love

Mark 14:4-5​

4.....Some of those present were saying indignantly to one another, "Why this waste of perfume?
5......It could have been sold for more than a year's wages[a] and the money given to the poor." And they rebuked her harshly.

  1. Mark 14:5 Greek than three hundred denarii

Isn't it sadly strange that people so often criticize the gifts others
make? I'm not sure if it is jealousy, greed, or pure pettiness that
makes humans so quick to be critical of other's generosity. However,
God loves a cheerful and generous giver. Part of the reason is that we
are most like God when we give generously and joyously. If only we were
as generous with our giving as we are with our criticism
